KSRTC Started New Volvo Services to Thrissur and Ernakulam. Got surprised ?
Then It’s not Kerala RTC, It’s Karnataka RTC. Karnataka RTC, India’s Most Preferred Inter City Operator, is famous for running it’s branded Airavat Volvo premium services. There is nothing to wonder for this great move from Karnataka RTC. First buses towards Thrissur and Ernakulam started from Bangalore yesterday.
Departure from Thrissur: 20.30
Arrival At Bangalore: 7.00
End to End Fare: 587
Via: Mysore, Sathyamangalam, Coimbatore, Palakkad
Bangalore – Ernakulam (Via Hosur, Salem, Coimbatore)
Departure from Bangalore: 18.30
Arrival At Ernakulam: 4.45
Departure From Ernakulam: 20.30
Arrival At Bangalore: 6.15
End To End Fare: 598
Via: Hosur, Salem, Coimbatore, Palakkad, Thrissur
At Present Kerala RTC is operating “One” Volvo bus service to Bangalore from Thiruvananthapuram while Karnataka RTC is operating,
Two Volvo buses from Bangalore to Thiruvananthapuram (One Via Salem, One Via Mysore),
One Volvo To Palakkad,
Two Volvo Buses to Ernakulam (Some times they put one special Volvo bus on weekends too),
One Volvo to Kasargod,
One Volvo is running to Kottayam,
And in addition to that, now
One Volvo to Thrissur and one more to Ernakulam.
Some reasons from KSRTC Officials is that Kerala RTC is not getting the proper funds from Government to purchase the buses. But that is not the case in Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh. In Kerala, most of the current buses are financed by Hudco, LIC etc. So let us hope the next Government will do something for the development of the state owned transport corporation.
